What Are the Requirements for U.S. Citizenship?
Becoming a United States citizen can seem like a long and complex process, but the results are well worth the effort. If you are considering becoming a U.S. citizen, the United States government requires you to meet certain criteria, including the ones listed below:
- Show good moral character
- Pay child support where appropriate
- Pay your taxes
- Have no recent criminal record
- Pass a civics test
- Pass a language proficiency test
